  • so far, the raw files show the true color.  But lightroom applies some kind of contrast and sharpening even when the mods are turned off.  Is there a way to stop lightroom from mucking with the ...
  • I tried camera jpeg (neutral), lightroom, and fastcap. See this doc for examples (at 100%) zoom.. I used copy and paste screenshots, and I can see no degradation or color change, but you can ...

    Yes, if you change what you need for a photograph, it changes the demands you put on your system. People dont' stop taking pictures of their kids individually when they have 2 kids.   Under current ...
  • ok, i should have qualified my statement.  For the same angle of view, effective fstop changes with sensor size.
  • Replied in Size matters
    Yup, and that data is biased against FF.  It's easy for someone to accidently compared apples to oranges.  It should be based on equivalent image (focal length = angle of view & equivalent dof ...
  • Replied in Size matters
    Very good point.   The nikon 1 system, unfortunately is now dead by nikon, is much smaller than mft and ff which are almost equivalent size and weight to each other.  At the same time, phones are ...

    Yup, In this example, FF is smaller, lighter and takes significantly better pictures. A $250 sony fe 50 1.8 is A LOT cheaper than a mft equivalent: nominal 25mm f0.9. Same angle of view, same ...

    That is very fair, and and here a comparison is done with 8x10 prints. It's fairly obvious in the IQ differences.  cameras and lens matter, even in 8x10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iat59i_Y18 ...

    disagree strongly. We spend most of our lives indoors which means we spend most of our lives in low light situations. The most human and average thing a user would do to document their life, is ...
  • Replied in Yawn
    yes, but 4mm of FF gets to create the same image 1mm of mft does.  It's much easier to do so and it shows in the results.  thats why FF have 4x the iso performance of mft.  in the simplest terms, ...
  • Replied in Yawn
    I do.  The fact that I can buy a ff with a used $200 kit zoom and get twice the performance of a used zuiko $500 2.8 mft, while being smaller, is extremely the relevant point. People should look at ...
  • https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4331167#forum-post-61811905 this data goes against your statements.  standard kit zoom is cheaper, faster (bigger aperture diameter), and sharper than $1000+ ...
  • The data I presented in my above post shows that this is false for many use cases. if your budget is $800 all in, gx85 + 2 kit lenses + 20mm 1.7 or the olympus counterpart is probably your best bet ...
  • properly exposed is just one small factor in image quality. I was thinking the the exact same thing about climate denier. One of us is brining objective laboratory data to the table, the other is ...
  • Replied in follow up
    i know my title is messed up, meant to correct but I can't now. It should be. Lens prices and objective performance comparison, FF is smaller and better in 50mm prime and standard zoom ranges. also: ...
  • Replied in follow up
    Not quite as objective follow up post. I want to bust some myths. I noticed a lot of imo very biased, and/or lack of knowledge, and/or stale knowledge regarding mft quality. I predict MFT as well ...
  • When you add lens cost, you can see that FF quickly becomes cheaper than MFT. IMO, i used the best data I had access to, but it’s a bit stale (1 year old) If you’re convinced on going FF, go a7iii ...
  • AD is a better term, but most people including myself haven't learned to use it and no memory frame of reference. I wish AD was the the standard term used, it's a better measurement now we dont ...
  • The first part of that statement is 100% factually incorrect. just because you use similar settings between different formats, is irrelevant. I'm just surprised you put in more than an hour of ...
  • what kind of things do you want to take pics of?  whats your budget.  I like buying used gear when it makes sense, but let us make some suggestions for you first. gx85 on bhphoto is 600 new with 2 ...
